Additional file 1:

Phylogenetic relationships of Mustelidae based on the analyses of 17 single introns. The IIAHs within a species was shown as 1 and 2. All trees shown were reconstructed using Bayesian method. Posterior probabilities (PP) are shown above internal nodes.

Additional file 2:

Phylogenetic relationships of Mustelidae based on the Bayesian concordance analysis (BCA) of the nuclear intron gene datasets and the nuclear plus the mt genome datasets. The concordance factors (CFs) from the nuclear intron gene analysis and the nuclear plus the mt genome analysis are shown above internal nodes.

Additional file 3:

Phylogenetic relationships of Mustelidae based on the analyses of 13 individual protein-coding genes, 2 individual rRNA genes, 22 tRNAs, combined protein-coding genes, combined rRNA genes, and combined tRNA genes. All trees shown were reconstructed using Bayesian method. Posterior probabilities (PP) are shown above internal nodes.
